With the COVID-19 pandemic showing very little signs of abating in the Philippines, the government has mandated that children engage in home schooling for the time being for their safety. This has pushed families to make several huge adjustments, from looking for the proper avenue for learning, to creating nooks where kids can focus.

Eunice Cleofas, who had previously shared how she and her family had upgraded their kitchen, had recently turned her sights to the bedroom of her two boys. “Ever since, they were co-sleeping in our master bedroom, while their room became our stockroom/laundry room,” she shared with Real Living.

The space needed organizing and a bit of refurbishing for it to once again be usable for the kids. “Because I have enrolled them in an online learning school, I was obliged to fix their room in preparation for the school year [starting] in August. Plus, since I am working from home since [the] ECQ, I have all the time needed for home renovations.”

She first organized her children’s Nerf gun collection using a holder she had previously made. “I made a DIY toy holder out of old chicken fence and painted it yellow.”

She also repurposed party tables into study tables. “[I believe] Having a personalized and organized area will encourage my kids to study.”

Remember the pallet wood she previously used in her DIY kitchen makeover? She also added them to the bedroom and turned them into hat holders.


A DIY bed that Eunice’s uncle earlier made sits in one corner of the room. Customized drawers were added in for additional storage.
